“AIPES was challenging, interesting; different from other courses. AIPES is an experience to get know other people/cultures from various countries, it’s a chance to learn more about US and a chance to destroy some stereotypes one may have about some countries or some nations. It’s an opportunity to stay and live in Prague which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. AIPES gives a chance to open a new door in life, to think about future goals, to improve yourself and obtain knowledge in other fields. Your experience at AIPES will be memorable for the rest of your life. During AIPES you become the best of the best!”
